S-D."); identified from an obituary in the London Times]; 2. Burndy Library ... gift of Bern Dibner. Herald of Science no. 44. The illegible autograph or other inscription of a former owner[s] appears faintly on the title leaves, as though it had been washed or bleached from the paper

The recipient was presumably the British chemist, Thomas Edward Thorpe (1845-1925)
